, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo

limbaugh -- because we do need both. rush limbaugh rallies the crowd and is a good job of educating people on issues. but you will rarely hear him say call congress. it is other voices is a call congress or go to your tea party. we need a variety of voices. the problem in the blogosphere, and we are really bad about this compared to the left, is if i do something at red state, a protest, there's going to be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would just do it their way instead of my way it would be more effective. you get that everywhere, but the right is notorious about everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or george will or glenn back. -- glen beck. i am a big believer at throwing stones are republican politicians have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house and it will hurt us because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. that's why we need to grow a lot of stone's right now so they figure things out before next year. inly the ri
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
is not that we need pundits or activists, we need both. rush limbaugh rallies in the crowd, does a good job of educating people on the issues. others are the ones you rarely will hear calling congress. we need a variety of voices. the problem of the blogosphere is the writing. if i do something that protests, there will be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would do it their way instead of my way it will be much more effective. you get that everywhere. the right is notorious about that, everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or gen -- george will. the problem is when we start throwing stones to each other as opposed to throwing stones at the other side. i am a big believer at throwing stones at republican politicians who have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house, and it will hurt us, because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. we can throw a lot of stones right now. in the right blogosphere, you have some a competing voices is th
premiums. this is unsustainable, if i can't stand up to some screamers and to rush limbaugh, then i don't deserve to be in the united states senate. >> is there a democratic versus republican fight going on that is about health care policy? if we -- everybody acknowledges the numbers -- most people acknowledge the number of uninsured out of control costs, the difficulties, not only for american families, but for our economy and our international competitiveness in terms of our business. are republicans proposing a different way to meet those challenges? or are they saying don't fix it, it's fine? >> they're the party as nope. and i like to think of myself in the party of hope. it's no, it's no about everything. and you know, i don't think they do buy into the fact that this is a problem for most americans. they say we have the greatest health care in the world. well, the fact is, we pay twice as much and our outcomes aren't as good. we have 48 million people with no health care as a result they walk into emergency rooms. it's costing every american who is insured $1,100 to pick up the c

by the megaphone of rush limbaugh who went so far. >>> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: they argue the emit is rule. >> i think that the politicians should be careful about so easily dismissing this many people showing up and participating in the process. >> reporter: virginia democrat jim moran expects to get an earful. >> it's fine to be opposed. i don't think it's fine to come in with the objective of disrupting the town hall meetings. >>> that was kelly o'donnell reporting. president obama used his weekly radio address to zplan health care reform and explain what it will do for most people it. >> knows not about putting government in charge of your health care zmurns. it's about you putting your health care insurance. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. >> bob mcdonnell says the answer for people who have no insurance is a free market, not a nationalized system. >>> senator martinez made a surprising announcement yesterday. >> as a private sector citizen i do hope
massachusetts and signed into law a healthcare plan with $50 co-pay for abortion. what did rush limbaugh and others from fox news let this guy go by? why did christian leadership endorsed this guy? guest: it is a great country. you can say anything you want if you do not believe in the laws. the supreme court does not tell me what to do, i believe in it, it is not legal. fine, make a choice. run for yourself, become president -- we will debated. that is part of the backdrop, anger and frustration that people have, that is the backdrop for the next campaign. host: here, a reporter spending new year's eve in iowa. the following tuesday was in new hampshire. it was an extraordinary five-day window that shaped the race. guest: no question, that was one the most intense periods in the campaign. january 3, barack obama wins iowa, and it easily in the three-way race. host: what about john edwards? what if he had guest: won iowa it is one of the great if's. even if john edwards had one eye when he could not have been the nominee -- even if he hadwon iowa. if obama one had finished third in iowa

limbaugh. this guy in miami beach is blaming president obama for the state of his job? he should be blaming bush. bush was in office eight years. z no are a result much 12 years of republicans taking jobs to other countries. >> you talked about folks who have stopped looking for jobs. >> out sources has continued over the years. there's also jobs that are in sourced there is a little bit of a balance. in terms of the stats. you are counted as unemployed if you are actively looking. if you've stopped looking, then you become the discouraged worker and you drop off the rolls. i think it is best to look at the general trend on the unemployment rate. we are seeing some of the worst unemployment we've had since the depression. host: in the hartford current, they have a map of the u.s. this is not seasonally adjusted. the states in white have unemployment rate below 8%. in light orange social security 8-10%. the states in dark orange, the unemployment rate is above 15%. can you explain why it seems more people are out of work along the coasts? >> part has to do with the real estate bubble we had.
into the open. rush limbaugh compared a logo for the plan to a nazi symbol. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: and the internet is full of references to the president as hitler or as a racist. >> this guy is i believe a racist. >> reporter: to date the secret service has disrupted at least three different assassation plots tied to white supremacist groups so there is serious concern this week in new hampshire when a man stood across the street from a presidential town hall meeting with his gun on full and legal display. >> it's clearly nerve-racking when he's out in the open. i think they really do fear that something could happen to him. >> reporter: and in a new report, southern poverty law center says that since obama took office, there has been a sharp growth in the so-called militia groups, the kind that helped spawn a wave of domestic terrorism in the 1990s. ♪ >> reporter: now they use youtube, rock music and the internet to recruit new members and spread their words of hate and fear including this one from the supposed leader of the
side like rush limbaugh, god, and the facts, but -- but even with all that, how do you see the -- the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, nonpolitically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and, like, showmanship up against us where they twist our words and just sell lies all day that we can hardly combat? >> well, let me say, first of all, that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan and then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of 1980, and then i served with him for eight years in the congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue that we had a harder time because we didn't have limbaugh, we didn't have fox news, we didn't have hannity, we didn't have the internet and so there was actually probably a greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "the new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if yo
rush limbaugh's attention. >> it's becoming cool to make fun of obama. >> reporter: maybe not quite so much in new york city. >> yucky. >> extremely disturbing. >> stupid. >> childish. >> whether you like the guy or not, you don't do that to anybody. >> shame on them. >> reporter: shame doesn't seem to be inhibiting critics. >> bravo, mr. president. bravo. >> reporter: the white house had no comment on the joker image. but what do the joker and socialism have to do with one another any way? robert dockerty points out that the joker supports anarchy. >> the only sensible way to live in this world is without rules. >> reporter: critics counter the president and the joker tend to give away money. to cash in, the website "hero builders" plans to sell an obama joker action figure for 50 bucks apiece. but for some, the image is down right disturbing. >> i think i do have a problem with the white face. >> reporter: back when president bush was in office, he got the joker treatment. so did hillary clinton. but when it comes to the current president -- >> it's a right wing spin, disgraceful and
. it was included in the bill beez these two wanted it. then thed are cal right, sarah palin, rush limbaugh, others, even charles grassley, says we're pulling the plug on grandma and calling it a death panel? it was a republican idea. >> and the congressman distanced himself from that whole idea, but what does the president need to do? i mean, is there one thing that he could offer here that the republicans would sign on board? >> thank you. let me give you two. talking about equalizing the tax treatment between people that buy their insurance directly from an insurer and people that get insurance directly from their employers. that's a reasonable position that the president should be willing to talk about, but he criticized john mccain in the presidential election and the unions are against it so he won't talk about it. medical malpractice reform is another commonsense solution. i would say to the president you have an opportunity to get something bipartisan here but you've got to walk away from the left side of your party. he's never been willing to do that. >> paul, i want to show you this nbc n
to their leader, drug-addicted rush limbaugh. i'm very concerned hearding they show up at the meetings with ak-47s because that's quote unquote is their right. they want this president not only hurt, but gone. if you know what gone means, you get my drift. because they are never going to give him any leeway. the republicans that call before me, there are very few and far between. as far as joe that georgia, he calls all the time. he's one of the radicals. why are they taking -- what they they lost with him in the white house? please have them call in and tell me. >> >> host: molly, hold on. the headline white house backs right to arms outside obama events. >> caller: but did they do it before inform this is a side to president obama. they want to intimidate him. it's a prop for that. and i heard that they take these guns. : it is in them and giving a sign, we are in power and we got the guns and i tell you if they don't get a handle on the radical right wing with this bitch real hatred of our president of the united states -- vitriolic hatred. host: is a bipartisan health bill and poor? donnell on
is the president of as well. how many republicans are going to say, ok, rush limbaugh, you have to get over this because he is reaching out. host: are you supporting the public option? caller: honestly, i do not understand the public option. if it makes sense, we should try a, a public option or cooperative. -- we should try it, public option or cooperative. host: thank you. next caller. caller: i worked for the post office, our insurance -- we had every time that we wanted to pick from. we chose ourselves from all over the country. i do not see why we cannot have that now for everybody. host: next call from michigan on the independent line. good morning. what do you think about president barack obama? is he compromising too much? caller: i think that have a unique perspective on this situation. i am a health care provider that happens to own his own business. i have a daughter with a pre- existing condition. i also have first-time knowledge of the single payer run system in ireland. i think that the system out there does the most to decrease the prices in health insurance, and i will leave
stupid. we can talk with the other fat one, that rush limbaugh, and not to mention mostly all the people that get up there and carry on are from the south. they are ignorant, they have no teeth, they have no brains, and i'm so ashamed of them. i am so glad i do not live in the south. thank you. host: barbara? barbara's gone. in "the washington post" this morning grassley is the talk of town halls. this is by perry bacon who writes about the town hall meetings of senator charles grassley, the ranking member in the senate finance committee. "conservative activists mobilized early sending urgent e-mail alerts asking republicans to show up at meetings." some iowans, explained someone who strongly opposes the health care reform effort wonders if grassley is wandering off the reservation. curt, what's on your mind this morning? caller: thank god for c-span. i want to talk about the health care system. i am an immigrant. and since i come here, my wife have insurance. i don't use it, because i don't normally get sick, but she uses it a lot. man, i'm telling you, the bills are -- they are so craz
news and to disrupt -- rush limbaugh and to disrupt the organized campaigns. you noticed that most of the disruption is in democratic town halls. they are not disrupting republican town halls. that let's you know it is planned. unfortunately like this last lady said, they are usually older people who are already on socialize medicare and either don't realize they are on socialized medicine already. texting host: thank you, jamie. a common from teresa from twitter. peaceably assemble. " the new york times" on the front-page reports on how people start their day with waking up and getting on line first. coffee can wait, the day's first stop is on line. i will pull this and just read a piece of the story. the surge in early risers is reflected an on line and wireless traffic patterns. internet companies that used to watch traffic levels rise only when people booted up at work now see the uptick much earlier. a boston company that analyzes internet use says web traffic and the united states gradually decline to midnight until 6:00 a.m. on the east coast and then a huge morning caffeine
yesterday was asked -- most of those questions come from r ush limbaugh and others like an. she was his plan and others with her that they work mis informed -- this is not even in the bill. then, when he answered that question for them instead of them listening they were screaming and hollering. how can in would have a discussion if they do not listen to one another's opinions? host: on the republican line from philadelphia. caller: you do a great job, young lady. my comment is about the history of recession. the democrats created the first recession in 1937. there was a tariff act from 1890 that was signed into law by president harrison. the act included among other items, taxing opium and marijuana at $10 per pound. you have the fbi in the 1930's who created so much propaganda against people who believe these things who believe these things should not exist anymore, going up to the prohibition. i am a muslim who supported over cleveland twice. we will continue to boycott any body who wants to be like ronald reagan. thank you. host: today in "the usa today" they note that president obama wi
is getting anything out of this debate right now except maybe rush limbaugh and sean hannity. they make millions of dollars a week, you know, just keeping this disaster going, this division. but actually, i am educated as well as a lot of people out here listening. and when i look for a bill, what is my money going for? i want it to be a republican bill versus a democratic bill, and discuss the issues rather than just making up -- i do not know. host: are you getting -- are you paying attention to all the back and forth from "hardball" to cnn to glenn beck? caller: yes, but i do not appreciate it because i do not know what bill they are talking about. we have three different bills, and so far as a republican i see that we do not have a bill. so what are we talking about? host: the three bills on the house side are -with the house ways and means, on the senate side is the health, education, and labor committee. there is no final bill yet until sometime in the fall. the president indicating that that vote could come in november or even into december. the front page of "the washington time
they are basically racist, they listened three hours a day to their leader, the fact, drug addicted rush limbaugh, and i am very concerned about heard they show up with ak-47's because that "is their right." they want this president to not only heard but they want him gone, and if you know what gone means you get my drift because they are never, ever going to give him leeway. and a republican who calls before me, they are very few and far between and as far as joe mceachern, the inbred in georgia, he calls in all the time, he is one of the radicals about taking the country back. what have they lost with him and the white house? please, have them call in and tell me. host: on page a3 of "the washington post" this morning, white house backs rights arms outside obama events. robert gates, white house press secretary said people are entitled to carry weapons outside such events if local law allowing "there are laws that govern firearms better done state or locally," he said. "those laws don't change when the present comes to your state or locality." caller: did they do it before? this is a sign to ob
will be on what rush limbaugh and i am sure we will be mocking liberals and mocking ourselves and mocking conservatives because this program is all about rude talking condescending nasty liberalness. anyway but in my defense my son is all for this. so how is your son? >> twenty. >> clayton: seth mcfarlane the creator of the show had this to say simin han sure a lot of reaction will be you monsters. how could you have karl rove on your show. but you know, we also take a lot of heat from a lot of right-wingers for the fact that we are so liberal and so blatantly liberal sweep it what's next in the. >> i'm taking a lot of heat for being associated with seth mcfarlane. >> clayton: this is not the only show karl has done. we also have word now that paula abdul (title, speed when they are looking at you for a new host a three-day contacted us sing you would be fantastic to hunt you are taking over paula abdul. >> when a segment is over you and i have a few things to say clayton. >> clayton: thank you graphics department we appreciate you. >> that was clayton. they put a superimpose my ever clay
are dying every day because of that. >> if that all wasn't enough, conservative radio host rush limbaugh is fanning the flames by making analogies comparing president obama to adolf hitler. on his radio show yesterday, he said, quoting here, the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. that prompted strong words from the white house. >> i think any time you make references to what happened in germany in the '30s and '40s, i think you're talking about an event that has low quibbling. and i think any time anyone ventures to repair anything to that, they're on thin ice. and it's best ndenot deployed. >> so everyone's all fired up here. so asking what do you think about this, how everything's all ramped up in this debate about health care and the town hall meeting. so i posted this question on my facebook page. got a huge response. this is what hal wrote -- i think people are fed up with no answers, answers. they want real answers to real questions and they're not getting them. that's why hal thinks the protesters are really getting rally at these town halls. allison wro

him a break. they really should give him a break. people like rush limbaugh and i cat think of the name on fox news, he really irritates me. i mean, barack obama cannot do anything, he can't even -- with all the people sittingomething critical. but i want to ask a question, sir. do you think he's going to become a great president? >> guest: it is too early to say. how can you do that? or could be a great president was something that he thought about at the earliest stages of trying to decide whether or not to run. and again this is pretty much the second chapter of the book where, you know, he and his friends are discussing what makes a good president, in his opinion the sort of mixture of the person and the time and that is why he thought ronald reagan was probably the great president and even though he opposed pretty much every single one of his policies the character, the leadership of the individual with the time and the country boss ready for that kind of change. now he went public with that approach and that observation around the time of the nevada caucus and the sout
that the president is the president of as well. how many republicans are going to say, ok, rush limbaugh, you have to get over this because he is reaching out. host: are you supporting the public option? caller: honestly, i do not understand the public option. if it makes sense, we should try a, a public option or cooperative. -- we should try it, public option or cooperative. host: thank you. next caller. caller: i worked for the post office, our insurance -- we had every time that we wanted to pick from. we chose ourselves from all over the country. i do not see why we cannot have that now for everybody. host: next call from michigan on the independent line. good morning. what do you think about president barack obama? is he compromising too much? caller: i think that have a unique perspective on this situation. i am a health care provider that happens to own his own business. i have a daughter with a pre- existing condition. i also have first-time knowledge of the single payer run system in ireland. i think that the system out there does the most to decrease the prices in health insurance, and
. that is one of the reasons they hate rush limbaugh so much because they --, because he makes fun of liberals so much. one of the reasons blockers are effective is most of you don't live in washington. you live somewhere else, you don't have to go to those cocktail parties and be beaten down all the time. i also want to encourage you to get the tools. i mean get training. it is not enough to come to one conference and think that you now know everything there is. everybody is learning. i am always striving to be a better writer. go to conferences, read books. i would encourage you to get the logistical tools come a blackberry or an iphone that allows you to videotape things like town hall meetings. a video camera might come in handy in one of those events. everybody in this room should be on twitter. no. 3 is get the networks. -- is guilty networkeet network. i know a couple of people from a nrcc are here today. get to know them. if you are a republican, they can plug you in paris state principled. conservative blogger is make a mistake of siding with the bush administration whether it was med
, they will start to win. do not respond to their absurd attacks. the key is not to fall for it. rush limbaugh said if conservatives spent their time responding to the never-ending series of baseless attacks from liberals, they would be lost to the cause of truth and freedom forever. awesome point. book, liberals are angry and they don't take the time to equip themselves with the facts. so look at that as a great opening for yourself. do what ann coulter does. when they call them names, laugh. just laugh. that is exactly what ann coulter does. [applause] >> they have no idea what to do with that. when you start laughing, they are completely at a loss. it is laughable what they are doing. and then just tell them it's the oldest trick in the book and it will not work for me. it is one thing for me to be up here today telling you to laugh in the face of liberals, and in your classes and to laugh in the face of your professors. i know it is another thing entirely to be able to actually do it, to laugh at those who call you names. it is tough to dig deep, to believe in something bigger than yourself, to
to contend with. first, rush limbaugh happily admitted he wants our president to fail. then a republican senator openly admitted he wants to block the health insurance reform for millions as a way to -- quote -- "break the president." another republican senator admitted that at least half of the other side's opposition to reform is purely political. and an influential commentator advised the republicans to avoid consensus at all costs and instead go for the kill. these partisan tactics have consequences. these consequences will be evident when every kitchen table, every family budget and every american's peace of mind. and they're watching. a poll released last week found that a majority of americans credit president obama for putting partisanship aside, trying to work with congressional republicans to get this done for the good of the country. republicans, they found, weren't returning the favor. others may be focused on delaying health insurance reform, but we will make sure we won't let that hafplt we already have seen what happens when we do nothing. the costs of sitting this one out
